Thursday Three Hundred: Caruth Terrace 1955 Time Warp For Sale, And You Can Tour The Ranch on Sunday

Published September 27, 2012 by Joanna England

Sometimes you see traces of what an older home used to look like through the slick veneer of fresh paint and new flooring. Perhaps the cabinets in the kitchen get a refacing and the paneling in a bedroom is stripped and recoated, but under decades of haphazard updating is a mystery.

If the anthropologist in you is always curious about these things, head over to 6509 Prince in Caruth Terrace on Sunday to check out a 1955 ranch in original condition for $334,900.

This house has four good-sized bedrooms and three baths, and totals more than 2,500 square feet. Other than your typical replacements — flooring, windows, sprinkler system, and I think one appliance — this home looks just like it did when it was purchased almost 60 years ago.

Each of the bathrooms, which have the original Daltile of course, have a different color scheme. The largest bathroom is a lovely combination of pink and gray, while the other bathrooms feature a more neutral cream and a pea soup/evergreen scheme.

In the backyard you’ll see a built-in grill and a carport with storage, but no garage. Want to see it in person? Head over to 6509 Prince on Sunday, Sept. 30, between 1 and 3 p.m.
